See, this is one of those things where voat and I tend to disagree, but not entirely.

On its own: the statement "BUY AMERICAN, HIRE AMERICAN" is great. I absolutely encourage everyone to buy and hire whoever the fuck they choose.

But a lot of you folks want the government to force others to do the same, or to inject force into the market to artificially bias the market in favor of (politically connected) American companies.

We don't need to subsidize and tax everything in the world.

You mother fuckers need more Ron Paul in your life.

Like that last 4-5 decades of NeoLiberal Free trade was not enough?

Free trade agreements and NeoLiberal anything is not the same as free trade. America hasn't had a free trade policy in centuries.

If you think Dr. Paul is a NeoLiberal you must be unfamiliar with his work.

Ron Paul argued for China to have Most Favored Nation trade status in Congress. He's been on the take for a long time. Just one more of those DC bastards who has sold out his country.

Visa restrictions are one of the powers the president actually has and can implement. so not really. The president can allow or disallow anyone he wants into the country. Id rather have regulation that favors American workers over foreign ones anyday. Besides, if he's lowering the corporate tax (although I wish it was lowered to 1%) There's no need to hire overseas talent when you have great talent at home.

but really that's all that can be said on the subject. . .if Trump REALLY lowered the federal income tax AND corporate tax to a flat tax of 1%. . . and put a moratorium on ALL immigration for 3 years while tightening up the requirements(those still in line can still go through the process as there is a multi year waiting list already) Maaaaan, that would be glorious as fuck. A man can dream though.

Also visa law and regulation is a part of border law, so Now actually, Ron Paul would NOT mess with that, and probably would make it stronger as well. He DOES believe in borders after all.
